Amazon Kindle App for Google Android OSThe app is going to let users choose among 540,000 books, including 96 of 110 from The New York Times Best-Sellers List. The e-books can be purchased and downloaded directly to the smartphone. 

It is being designed to work with the dedicated Kindle e-reader, automatically synchronizing the user’s books and bookmarks so they always have their reading material with them and can pick up reading where they left off.

Unlike the Kindle e-reader, which has a monochrome display, the Android OS version will let users read books in full color, including children’s books, cookbooks, travel books, textbooks and graphic novels.

There is also a version of the app for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad as well as smartphones running the BlackBerry OS.
